Writer. Dreamer. Mother. Runner.


Tori McGee is the author of the children’s books Sloths Don’t Run, The Lost Narwhal, and the Ooey Gooey Monster series. She lives by the motto “...what if you fly?” which has led her on some incredible and random adventures: competing on Wheel of Fortune, finishing an Ironman triathlon, and most recently, writing children’s books. When she’s not dreaming up her next story, you might find her running or crocheting. Tori lives in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida (a city she’ll argue is the best in the world) with her husband and son (who she’ll also argue are the best in the world).


The Lost


Somewhere in his travels, Mel the narwhal has made a wrong turn and ended up thousands of miles from home! Luckily, he's adopted by a pod of beluga whales who treat Mel as if he were one of their own. Inspired by actual events, The Lost Narwhal is a story about embracing your uniqueness and learning what it means to feel accepted.


Sloths don't run

Tori's debut book, Sloths Don't Run, is the story of two rainforest creatures who embark on an unlikely adventure, running The Great Rainforest Race. The pair proves that with hard work they can do what seemed impossible, and learn the true meaning of courage along the way.
